Just two days to MAKE your custom bag!


This textiles-based workshop at MAKE will have you creating your daily go-to bag.

You don’t need any prior expertise to design and sew your very own bag.

It’s a trip to the 90s with this super fun textiles-based project at MAKE. Be it a belt bag, fanny pack, or whatever else you might call it, you can now make one to reflect your own style!

From 8-9 November, join MAKE in a 2-day workshop and construct a belt bag from scratch. With an expert instructor to guide you, learn how to line, insert a zip and sew the bag you’re going to carry along everywhere you go.

Running from 10am to 1pm, the class is recommended for everyone above 15, priced at AED 390 per person.

What makes this class perfect is that its open for beginners! There are no previous skills required, and once completed you can enjoy several of the other sewing, knitting and crochet workshops on offer in MAKE.

MAKE is part workshop, part lab, part studio and part garage. So far, the community based makerspace has offered members access to tools, computer software, and a supportive community of people. Essentially, the perfect space and atmosphere to build the things you’ve always wanted to make.

At each workshop, you will always find relevant professional-grade machinery, tools and software includes 2D and 3D design software, laser-cutters, large-format printers, wood and metal-working equipment, milling and fabricating machines, and more.
